Latest SysCAD Version: 26 October 2022 - SysCAD 9.3 Build 139.31866

Related Links: PHREEQC SysCAD Project Workflow


Formally released as part of Build 139 (first available as BETA version in Build 138). The PHREEQC SysCAD TCE option and models documentation is for the latest version of SysCAD.

General Description

The PHREEQC Direct Calc model allows the user to 'call' the PHREEQC solver to determine the state of an aqueous solution at a given temperature/enthalpy and pressure. The user enters the mass or molar makeup of the 'Feed' stream, and the unit will then determine the equilibrium conditions of the resulting stream at the user defined temperature/enthalpy and pressure.

The model has no links to any other models in SysCAD. Therefore, this model is not a part of any SysCAD network, but is a stand-alone calculation that allows the user to check the status of an aqueous solution.

Notes

  1. The user MUST have added and configured a PHREEQC Model Configuration unit in the SysCAD project before this unit can function.
  2. The user MUST have installed a version of PHREEQC on their computer to make use of the PHREEQC functionality in SysCAD. Please see https://www.usgs.gov/software/phreeqc-version-3 for more information.

Inputs and Outputs

There are no connections to this unit.

Model Theory

The PHREEQC Direct Calc Model uses the PHREEQC algorithms and data to determine the status of the aqueous solution.

The PHREEQC Direct Calc Model calls the PHREEQC algorithms to determine the status of the mixture using the PHREEQC "DInput" data. The PHREEQC results are displayed in the "Output" tab using PHREEQC species.

The DInput, Input, Output and Diff pages are displayed using PHREEQC species, as defined in the database (.dat) file specified in the corresponding PHREEQC Model Configuration unit model. The species used in the SysCAD project are not used in this model.

The calculations performed are similar to using PHREEQC directly. Please see https://www.usgs.gov/software/phreeqc-version-3 for more information.

Calculation of Osmotic Pressure

PHREEQC calculates the activity of water, which is then used to calculate the osmotic pressure by the Van't Hoff formula. The Van't Hoff formula is:

[math]\displaystyle{ \Pi=-\frac{RT}{\overline{V}}ln(a_w) }[/math]

where [math]\displaystyle{ \Pi }[/math] is the osmotic pressure, [math]\displaystyle{ \overline{V} }[/math] is the partial molar volume of water (ideal), and [math]\displaystyle{ a_w }[/math] is the activity of water (mole fraction basis).

Workflow

The suggested workflow for configuring the model is:

  1. Make sure the project contains at least one of the PHREEQC Model Configuration model, and the model is loaded with the correct PHREEQC database file you would like to use for the direct calculation.
  2. On the Direct Calc DInput tab page, type in the required feed properties for T, P and mass or mole flow of individual species.
  3. Perform an equilibrium calculation based on constant Temperature by pressing the Calculate.png button on the PHREEQCDirectCalc tab page.
  4. The Results are displayed on the PHREEQCResults and Output tabs.

NOTES:

  1. The PHREEQC Direct Calc Model does not require species mapping between PHREEQC and SysCAD.
